Last night we had our FREE THE NATIONS Launch Party / Open House event!
Our gracious hosts opened up their beautiful home to allow FTN invited guests to peruse art and the latest in fair trade jewelry. The night was filled with great food and friends. But most importantly, it ignited in guests a passion to use fashion to help others in need.
The only thing that was missing - a good photographer. We only had our iPhones to help document the jewelry displays.
Despite the lack of good photography, the evening was a great success!
We’re all looking forward to the next FREE THE NATIONS Open House Event.
Stay tuned. There will be more in the near future.

After 8 months of dreaming, researching, planning, and a bit of perseverance, our vision has finally come to fruition …..
Welcome to FREE THE NATIONS!
It all started with a heart and a vision to use business for good. To use the beauty of fashion to help others. To have our purchases make a difference in this world. So we set out to create a shopping environment that did just that.
The goal of FREE THE NATIONS is to offer women's jewelry, accessories, and clothing that are both fashionably relevant and socially beneficial. We search around the world to find small businesses, ministries, and fair trade co-ops that are producing cool products as well as creating sustainable jobs for impoverished communities. Additionally, FTN consults with smaller ministries to help fine tune their products, making them more competitive in the western sense. Items will be made available through the FTN website and sold on the basis of their fashionability, quality, and purpose.
We want you to know that every purchase through FREE THE NATIONS helps someone in need.
The first selection of FREE THE NATIONS jewelry is currently on sale now.
Be excited. This is just the beginning.
